    today is the day

    Today is the day we are reopening the pool. Its pretty early to be open but, we wanted to get it going and see about getting some work done. we did have someone come out and fix the leaking light (hopefully)...when our pool was closed down the water drained down the light.
    Does anyone know if that putty fix on the light actually hold and work?
    we are also thinking of replacing the skimmer (it has the old rectangle shape) and maybe a replaster (maybe on that)....the pool is so old and needs some work but, we are hoping to get it all fixed up
    hope to post pics soon...
    I plan on becoming a life member and ordering our test kit....I'm just thrilled to find this forum and the wealth of experience and knowledge!!!

    putty will fix your light you can probaly do it yourself just take light out of nitch (screw on top) pull light out on on to deck take your putty (part # ATM530318 on my site) mix it up and put around the cord at the back of the light ( where cord meets wall) let it set for the night and next day put light back in nitch

    here are some opening pics....
    also included some closeup shots of the plaster (looks like it was painted) what do you think, does it need a plaster job now??? it really needs caulking around it....this afternoon someone is coming out to give us a quote on how much to replace the skimmer and to change the line (we only have one line for skimmer and main drain). any other ideas for updating the prehistoric beast???

    thanks for any help or guidance,
    chris
